FULLY ACCREDITED 

Arts Therapy:  How To Use Arts Therapy and The Creative Process

This course is fully accredited by a globally recognized CPD body, the Continuing Professional Development Standards Agency. 

Taking this course will give you the opportunity to gain a diploma signifying formal certification for 10 hours of CPD / CE credit. 

Please note, accreditation is optional. It is by no means compulsory, or a prerequisite for taking the course. 

Degree requirements vary based on the position you pursue and the area in which you reside or work. Should you wish to opt for accreditation and the diploma, full details and directions will be given at the end of the course. 

This is the third in the series of my Therapeutic Art courses, which has been created for people who are interested in therapeutic art and the creative process, either for self exploration and healing, or for the purpose of working with other people to help support them in a therapeutic setting.  

The therapeutic, creative process of self expression through art, can improve our physical and mental health, as well as our emotional well being.

  • It helps us to manage our feelings in a more positive way
  • Can give us the confidence to address and resolve issues from the past and present
  • Increase self esteem and develop a greater self awareness

Creating art provides an outlet to express yourself freely, which will encourage and promote a healthier, happier life.

You don’t need any previous experience, and the course is suitable for everyone.  Please be  aware, this course will not qualify you to work as an art therapist. 

What does the course cover?

The course curriculum covers a range of topics.  We’ll be looking at how to use various arts and therapy techniques in a range of settings,  This includes painting, drawing as well as using music, dance and even drama as a therapeutic tool enabling you to bring healing and harmony to both yourself and to your clients.

We’ll also be looking at how we can utilise the creative process to address specific issues such as authenticity, recovery and mental health, as well as using therapeutic art techniques for the treatment of things such as PTSD, illness and when working with children.

Artistic therapy can be incredibly useful for children who may have experienced bullying or trauma and can provide a safe sanctuary to share their feelings and emotions.

As we progress through the course, we’ll be looking at the interpretation of art and understanding the importance of non verbal communication, especially when working with clients who have experienced trauma or survived traumatic events.

Why study with me?

I am proud to be one of Udemy’s best selling instructors, having gained more than 12,000 reviews from 55,000 students in 182 countries.

As well as a lifetime access to the course, you’ll also benefit from unparalleled support 365 days a year.  I always respond to my students the very same day and more often than not you’ll receive a personal reply from me within a few hours.
